Golden Axe - "Imported several Sega Genesis ROMs as raw data into Audacity, left ear is U-Law import, right ear is A-Law."
Lightning Yellow - "Constructed from the raw data of Pokemon Lightning Yellow"
A Wall of Data - "I made it using audacity + .doc/.pdf/.jpeg. Was a funny way to create some noise.. it sounds like harsh noise/HNW."
Scratch the Surface - " 2'06" hnw from photo "
Bend the Wall - " 2'35" of databended text Harsh Noise Wall "
Holy Filament (Vancouver, WA) - "Aural abuse since 1999"
Gotham Sunbather - "All samples created by databending an image of batman...Source image: http://www.mediafire.com/i/?4ne6g3aqvhp07aa"
PolarBear Nightmare(s) - "All samples created from databending this image: http://www.mediafire.com/i/?ywkvj2npgcfp89f"
Deprogrammed - "I used audacity to make the track. The only effect I used is reverb. The files I used as source were mostly shortcuts from different programs, some of them I pitch shifted a little to add variety."
Impulse Second Take
Homemade Gcards & Roms - "Assembled in Audacity from three scanned & photoshopped homemade birthday cards and some files from cdroms (sources forgotten - tried loads!). Various annoying chunks removed, one file pitched down a few semis and some reverb added to a couple."

DÃ²+Âµâ€¢Â¿â€˜+Ãˆâˆ«WÂ« (noise for databending)
Databending is a concept that revolves around the alteration of art through re-arranging some of its content. This can be done in the physical realm with tapes, records, or even scratching a cd. It can be done in the digital world with granulation, or turning a jpeg into an audio file. Here, the good people at noiseguide have compiled some great data bent noise and HNW, etc, that use this fascinating process. Every track on this release is a goldmine of creativity and originality. Here, 16 tracks by 9 noise artists really encompass the sounds that can be made from literally anything and everything. Unicorn gun is muddled, muddy fun. Holy Filament is in fine form with a jpeg alteration of batman entitled "Gotham sunbather", and we get two great tracks from Somnaphon! I love this release, and encourage anyone reading this review to download it right away!
